Auschwitz sign stolen

The infamous ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ sign that overlooks Auschwitz concentration camp has been stolen.

The haunting landmark, which translates to ‘work sets you free’, was stolen overnight from the camp in southern Poland. Whether it was taken for scrap, or as a collectors item, is unclear. It has been replaced by a replica.

What is also unclear is how they managed to get away with it. The gate is off the main road, through a car park and down a drive. To get up to it, take it down and get away without being noticed suggests that security was pretty lax to say the least.

Mind you, whoever has it might have trouble if they try and sell it for scrap or as an antique, it is just a bit recognisable. Hppefully it will turn up sometime soon.
